RE-AIM evaluation of a teacher delivered program to improve the self regulation of children attending Australian Aboriginal community primary schools

Studies in north-western Australia Aboriginal communities identified executive functioning and behavioural regulation as significant issues for children. Exposure to alcohol prenatally and adverse childhood experiences are known risk factors for impaired self-regulation and executive function, these risk factors being present in remote communities. In response,a partnership was initiated to trial a teacher-delivered self-regulation intervention based on the Alert ProgramĀ®. While student outcomes were assessed, this paper describes the implementation and impact of the intervention on teachers through the five dimensions of the RE-AIM framework (Reach, Efficacy, Adoption, Implementation, Maintenance).
